Mom Says

Sometimes it's alright to eat ice cream for dinner!

Why, in some countries it's even required!

Old Fashioned Banana Split Recipe

  • 1 banana, split lengthwise
  • 1 scoop each vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream
  • chocolate syrup
  • marshmallow creme
  • strawberry syrup
  • whipped cream
  • chopped nuts
  • maraschino cherries


Place banana slices against sides of long, narrow, shallow dish. Place scoops of ice cream in a row between banana slices. Squirt chocolate syrup on vanilla and strawberry on strawberry. Spoon marshmallow creme over chocolate. Top each mound with whipped cream. Sprinkle with nuts and top each with a cherry.

Enjoy, but not too fast or you'll get a headache!

  4. Oh, my, now I've got to go get marshmallow creme. Of course, for dinner, the nuts on top are protein and the fruit and dairy. What more could you want? :P

  5. I love the photo, it does look yummy, especially since my dinner was 4 oz of BBQ chicken, 1 cup of potatoes and 1 cup of green beans. Can you tell that I really wish I could dive into that banana split? Good thing I am at home with no car tonight. That would throw my week into turmoil Thursday is weigh in night.

  6. Thank you so much for visiting me at Sunbonnet Cottage and for your words of encouragement.

    Your blog is truly precious.


  7. Oh My Socks....Looks just like the ones Mr Jerry used to make on the Ice cream truck... In little blue plastic boats!

  8. Mmmmmm! Now that's a vegetarian recipe I can really get behind!! I'm licking my lips and second guessing my plan to have a spinach smoothie this morning!
